Western Cape Community Safety MEC Dan Plato says officials are working hard to address grievances highlighted by protesting Ocean View residents.
Residents, for the third day on Friday, took to the streets to protest against the scourge of gang violence in the suburb.
This comes after rampant shootings that claimed the lives of young children, in particular.
Plato says he remains committed to solving residents’ issues.
“Currently it seems like there’s a breakdown in the relationship between the two entities, we cannot tolerate that any longer.”
He adds difficulties, besides gang violence, are also at play.
“The matter is not only related to the police; there’s also municipal matters and issues. I have indicated that I will take it up with the mayor of the City of Cape Town (Patricia de Lille).”
